Yankees update

After a 1-4 start that primed the Davey Johnson rumor mill, the 47-14 Yankees are enjoying success of historic proportions. By winning at least two of three games at Camden Yards they can break a record established by the 1912 Boston Red Sox. New York, 20-9 on the road, has won or tied 24 straight series since being swept by Anaheim in a season-opening two-game set. Yankees starting pitchers are 36-5 in their past 56 starts and 9-0 in their past 11. Wells has a perfect game but an imperfect shoulder. A pin cushion last season, Irabu leads the league in ERA. Pettitte is bothered by a sore hip and has allowed 141 base runners in 90 1/3 innings. The Yankees are 39-2 when outhitting foes. They are without center fielder Bernie Williams (knee) and shortstop Derek Jeter (abdominal muscle), both of whom

wrecked the O's in New York.
